“Regarded by many as King’s greatest early novel, this new edition of The Stand features a considerable amount of previously unpublished material which was originally cut from the first edition of the book.  The Stand comes much closer to the author’s original intention.
When a man crashes his car into a petrol station just north of Arnette, he brings with him the foul corpses of his wife and daughter.  He dies before he reaches the hospital, but it doesn’t take long for the appalling plague which killed them to spread across America and the world.
It is a long time before a few stunned survivors emerge, slowly and painfully, to build a new world.
But now the dreams start.  Dreams that forewarn the coming of the dark man and the strengthening of his empire.  His worn-down boots walk the roads; his red eyes pierce the night.  Surely, he’s the apogee of evil, warlord of the charnel house, prince of torture and death.”
